Visit Andalucia Post Coronavirus Measures for Recovery
Helping Businesses to recover
With continued restrictions on travel and uncertainty about the future, business is tough. The economy will take months to recover. Visitors to the region will be reduced in numbers due to travel restrictions and loss of confidence. Many businesses will be unable to survive, many more will struggle. Many businesses within Andalucia, depend on the money that visitors spend whilst they are here. The Junta de Andalucia is actively promoting 'within Andalucia' tourism, in other words encouraging people who live in Andalucia to appreciate the many opportunities they have and to take advantage of them. Visit Andalucia is committed to helping to do just that.

The Future is here
FREE Advertising for Existing & New Clients
We appreciate that the next months are going to be tough. We have therefore decided that every New client will benefit from 3 months, no obligation, FREE advertising. Businesses that register now will not pay anything for three months
Our social media strategy has been modified to reflect this changing world. The Visit Andalucia site is being heavily promoted within Andalucia and less so in other regions and countries. As travel restrictions ease we will expand our reach.
In this way we will uphold our guarantee of 60,000 impressions per year per advertiser.
We have made Visit Andalucia more 'Business Centric' to give even more exposure to our advertisers
